Yes, I recommend this program

Warm welcome

I offer my project management competencies to KITA. I gave project management lessons the KITA students, but also for the staff. I also gave courses in PowerPoint (Microsoft Office software) to help students preparing presentations. I also helped KITA for small activities.

Highlights: great support of the two guys that help Samuel in his work (for my work for KITA and for my extra time). KITA is used to welcome volunteers, so no bad surprise. Samuel is very happy to welcome volunteers and interns.

Difficulties: sometimes lack of disponibility of Samuel who is the pilar of KITA.
My stay was between January and March, it was not the best season for the plantations.
Because of a stop in the students activities during my stay, my integration with the students was not as efficient as it could be.

I keep my stay in my memory and I will come back for sure. We started a new friendship.
